Need to encrypt data and Internet cache files and get access denied using EFS

Hello,

We have a group of laptops that have confidential data and a state mandate says we have 60 days to encrypt the data.  We tried using EFS which worked on folders such as "My Documents" however some of these employees will be accessing web sites with confidential data and we need to encrypt the cached files also.  When I try to encrypt Temporary Internet Files I get "Access is denied error".

1. Is there a way to be able to encrypt folders such as Temporary Internet Files, Cookies etc. using Windows XP EFS
2. Do you have any other suggestions for file encryption at a no cost or low cost effort keeping in mind we will need to have a method to gain access to the data should the user forget their password or terminate employee (like with EFS we will be managing the certificate/keys).

Using Windows XP SP2

Thanks

I created a new folder - moved where my temp Internet explorer files are. (requires a log off).  Encrypted the temp Internet files folder and move the location back (requires a log off)

There might be a cleaner way - don't know how many laptops you have to do but....It worked for me.

Makes me feel kinda silly because I'm usually pretty good at that sort of figuring out.  That's why I like this forum, others point out the obvious.  Thanks
